and ultimately very bloody standoff between law enforcement and this very well-armed group of people. it was a 50-day standoff in waco that ended in a massive fire and many, many fatalities. >> good evening. it appears tonight that david koresh, who believed that he was the son of god, perished today in a setting that closely resembled hell. and apparently, he took more than 85 of his followers with him, including it's estimated 17 children. >> what happened at waco was an absolute nightmare. but on parts of the very far right, on the anti-government far right fringe, it was seen not just as a nightmare but as a conspiracy, as a government conspiracy, as something that was ginned up and in fact faked by the government to create a big enough, scary enough situation that it would justify taking away everyone's guns. a freshman republican congressman from texas at the time, a congressman named steve stockman, even wrote in an article in "guns & ammo" magazine that waco was a government execution. he said, "waco was supposed to be a way for the bureau of alcohol, tobacco and firearms and the clinton
in the days and weeks after the inauguration to sell their proposal for stiffer gun laws and gun safety package. it's a strategy they feel has been successful in the past. they used it during the fiscal cliff fight, the student loan debate and they feel it's a way to rally the american public on their side and to pressure congress to act. it has been successful in the past, will it be in this instance? of course, that is a big question mark. this is a very controversial issue. but the polls show that the president has the majority of america on his side. the wall street journal poll shows that americans favor stiffer gun laws so that is his plan moving forward. >> thanks to you, dave, before you leave, picking up on what kristin said there. the president's gun proposal here, there are a lot of folks who have surmised that the president has asked for things that politically he knows he will not be able to get, especially the assault weapon's ban, is that what the white house strategy is? >> they cannot say they are giving up on the assault weapon's ban, but i think they are looking and a

is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. >> tonight an unprecedented gathering on business, politics on both sides of the gun debate. dan rather, mark cuban, grover norquist, a texas gun owner who survived a mass shooting and a couple who stopped a thief with a gun of their own. how would you grade the president for his first four years and what da you want to see in the next four? this is "piers morgan tonight." [ applause ] good evening. our town hall is going in a few minutes but we begin with breaking news on another school shooting. this texas three were wounded and two in custody after a shoot-out that apparently resulted from an altercation at the north harris campus at lone star college. joining us is just an eyewitness, he's an emt student who treated two people who wered bleeding. he found out later that one of them was a suspected shooter. a very dramatic day, obviously, at the college today. tell me exactly what happened. >> well, i actually was coming out of class, and i had knew that there was a lot of commotion going on,
having arrived at the platform, greeting both of his daughters and his wife and mother-in-law. you see behind him, there is vice president biden, chuck schumer, chair of the inaugural committee is the first person we'll hear from and call proceedings to order. and then it unfolds like the greatest graduation ceremony ever. >> rachel, there's a moment when the new president takes over, like when reagan took over from carter, when the chief of secret service walks behind one guy to the other guy, it is pretty creepy. it is pretty creepy when you're the guy losing protection, but nicely enough, it will be the same guy there. >> jerry ford was the first president who upon leaving office from the inauguration of the new president, jimmy carter, decided to leave by helicopter, seen as a rather odd way to leave on the way, but every president has followed that tradition. it is a dramatic way to get out of dodge. also your last ride in marine one. >> you want to allow the indulgence just a bit. >> one of the things as yet undetermined for the second term is who exactly will make up the preside
think he did. >> he's harvard two degrees -- >> so how could he so misstate the law on guns when in fact scalia and the supreme court in 2008 specifically said a woman in anacostia in a crack house next door could have a handgun? and also saying the president exploited this, could somebody tell him he's actually senator of a very large demographically changing state and not the spokesman for the tea party for, like, you know, the greater tea party, the greater houston chapter of the tea party? i was shocked. >> i was shocked too. frankly, because he seemed to be saying in the senatorial way, cruz, my friend and they barely know each other. cruz went after him over and over and over again. it was a very unusual performance by a freshman senator who doesn't seem to want to get along, wants to start a fire here. >> the problem is mika if this had happened in 2010 i'd say i understand the politics of it. the republican party i'm sorry, we have our backs against the wall. the president of the united states has a 52% approval rating. john boehner has an 18% approval
already predict some serious challenges that include spending caps signed into law in 2011 that could make the next four years extremely difficult from a governing standpoint. let's talk about it with chris wilson, a republican consultant, former executive director of the texas republican party and the president of new heights communications. kristi, to you first. candidate obama in 2008 promised to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term. that hasn't happened. how about by the end of his second? >> well, john, i think what's important to remember is that as president obama is starting his second term, he's doing so in a remarkably strong position with high approval ratings and a great record in his first term. when he started, as we all know, the economy was in the ditch. he was able to successfully get us out of that at the point where last week the u.s. stocks closed at their highest level in five years and was able to pass historic health care legislation. by contrast, republicans have their ratings in the toilet. what that means is that there's probably -- it's going to b
already signed a trillion dollars of deficit reduction into law and committed to more spending cuts but we can't just cut our way to prosperity. we have toasting to invest in things like -- we have to continue to invest in things like education and energy. he put reducing the deficit in a balanced way to promote jobs for middle class families and that is going to be his guiding principle through the negotiations. >> i want to ask you quickly about the republican idea. would you support it but with the caveat they are telling the senate you haven't passed a budget in more than three years and you need to do that so we have a baseline for negotiations. >> well, let's revisit what the debt limit actually is. this is about congress paying the bills for what it has already racked up. the white house has made clear that the president will take a look at the proposal. they said it is encouraging that the republicans were moving away from some of their demands but the preferenc prefs still a long-term agreement and the president is going to use the negotiations to headache sure that we do reduce t
inauguration, it will all be a formality. law requires presidents and vice presidents be sworn in on the 20th. today the 20th, they were in two quiet ceremonies. >> please raise your right hand and repeat after me. i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states, and will to be best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the united states so help me god. >> congress gratulations, mr. president. >> thank you chief justice. >> last time the chief justice fumbled the words, this time he nailed it. president obama using a family bible today. tomorrow he'll use the lincoln bible. a lot to talk about tonight, vice president biden took the oath earlier, his residence the naval observatory. sonia sotomayor doing the honors there. yesterday during a surprise appearance at the iowa inaugural ball the vice president did -- well, sort of a joe biden. >> i'm proud to be president of the united states. but i'm prouder to be -- >> a few seconds ago he corrected himself. a few minutes ago, he and his wife and the p
second inauguration, it will all be a formality. that's because it happened on the 21st but law requires the presidents and vice presidents be sworn in on the 20th. so today, the 20th, in two quiet ceremonies they were. >> please raise your right hand and repeat after me. i, barack hussein obama, do solemnly swear that i will faithfully execute the office of president of the united states. >> the office of president of the united states. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> and will to the best of my ability. >> preserve, protect and defend. >> preserve, protect and defend. >> the constitution of the united states. >> the constitution of the united states. >> so help you god. >> so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> thank you mr. chief justice, thank you so much. >> chief justice roberts administering the oath. last time, the chief justice fumbled the words, this time he nailed it. president obama using a family bible today. tomorrow he'll use the lincoln bible. a lot to talk about tonight, vice president biden took the oath earlier, his residence the naval observato
and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. >> it's interesting the president chose this time to make his strongest stand, because as you know, dan, the supreme court will take up same-sex marriage in march. >> reporter: that's right. carol, i don't think it should be too much of a surprise because recall over the first term, much of the first term the president was evolving on this issue of gay marriage, only in may that the president finally come out in support of same-sex marriage and so i don't think we should be too surprised by that. this apparently is a continuation of that evolution, and one interesting point is we're here at the washington national cathedral here in washington for the prayer service, as you pointed out. this is a church that less than two weeks ago came out saying that they would support same-sex marriages and taking part in the service today an openly gay pastor, reverend nancy wilson, she will be, along with others, offering prayers for the pre
ahead and enforce the laws on the books, they've been pushing for that all along and they like that and plus, it was a couple of weeks ago, where wayne lapierre was excoriated on the airwaves for saying how dare him coming out and saying we should have more police officers or armed personnel in the schools. and now the president of the united states, in his initiatives have suggested that as well to put some more school resource people in the schools. so, that goes along with the nra as well. >> brian: right now we're waiting for the swearing-in ceremony nor vice-president joe biden to get underway, they're running a little late and we'll bring it to you live when it happens, even if you're in the middle of at pocket chair ad. does this look like a threat? a five-year-old suspended fr kindergarten because of this? we report you decide. >> looks like a hair dryer.

americans trying to understand the new tax laws. i've been learning a lot over the last few months and talking with people who are trying to help me make intelligent and informed decisions. i certainly don't have a definitive plan at this time but like everyone else i want to make decisions that are best for my future and my family. finances and taxes are a personal matter, and i should not have made my opinions on them public. i apologize to those who i have upset or insulted and assure you, i intend to not let that happen again. >>steve: a man now has to apologize for upsetting people or offending people because he doesn't like the idea of paying 63 cents on every dollar extra that he makes. >>steve: there is no secret why so many professional athletes choose not to live in california he has to give away 60% of his money or he's whining and should feel lucky. he's away probably 250 days a year from his family. there is no guarantee of any single dollar. there is no guarantee in his life. >> what happened to states which have raised their tax rates like california, like illinois v
difficult to do but if that can be found, and i think we're going to have good immigration law. >> the president extended really an olive branch, if you will, before the inaugural address to republicans saying that he's going to try to reach out more, perhaps invite people over to the white house, whether or not he kind of joked about playing cards and golf and that type of thing. if the president were to reach out to you more in the second term, would you take him up on it? would you be a part of a group that would really try to break through some of the nastiness that we've seen in washington? >> of course i would. and i would give an example of my doing that as i tried to work very closely with republican and democrats in the congress and with the president the first nine months of obama care, trying to reach a bipartisan agreement. but we weren't moving fast enough for the president. he decided to go ahead on a part dan basis. so i got nine months there of working very closely. i can tell you, more recently, there's an inaugural lunch after his speech and i was invited to t
